"Thanks - you're AWESOME :)" - Azeema, 28.6.2010, who is on a disaster rebuild project in Asia:

"We are trying to help rebuild some homes. And guess what, your articles are really helping us make important choices in our work, like what to use, what not to use etc. Thanks - you're AWESOME :)"

It is good to know we are helping with our huge amount of information, and it is always amazing how far the internet can reach.
